Blog How To: Healthy Summer Popsicles

It’s a hot summer day, you hear the jingle, and once again the ice cream truck strolling through your neighborhood.  Your kids are anxious to scour the couch for spare change or grab the nearest dollar and head for the front door to chase down their favorite frozen treat. While this makes for great childhood memories, the high amount of sugar, caloric and carbohydrate intake from these treats can be costly to their health. To cut back on the amount of ice cream truck visits and still give your kids a tasty frozen treat, try this easy to make healthy popsicle recipe!
